The Patriots Are Reportedly "Close" To A Josh Gordon Trade

josh gordon has been released by the cleveland browns

Josh Gordon's time with the Cleveland Browns is nearly at an end. Over the weekend, the Browns announced Gordon will no longer be a member of the team - whether through a trade or release within the next few hours.

A supreme talent, Gordon has several suitors interested in trading for him. Initial reports linked Gordon to the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys.

However, NFL insider Ian Rapoport suggested a new landing spot for the former Baylor star. According to Rapoport, the Browns and New England Patriots are getting close to a deal for Josh Gordon.

Here's more from Rapoport.

It would be a huge addition for the Patriots, who are struggling at the wide receiver position with Julian Edelman out for two more games.

New England is coming off of a stagnant offensive performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars in which star tight end Rob Gronkowski managed just two catches. Gordon's presence on the field would likely mean fewer double-teams for Gronk moving forward.

No trade is official.

Stay tuned.
